I mean, apart from the fact you live in Dubai or some other unAmerican country.
Yanks, the gubmint put out a bit of effort to make the dang things, but nobody uses them it seems. Why is that?
I bought a couple rolls just for the hell of it a couple weeks ago mostly for lunch money. I love the little critters! No more whipping out my wallet & fumbling through receipts, business cards, photos of my many, MANY mistresses, etc. And there are times when you just don’t want to take out the bank roll for the whole world to see. Just a quick dip into my pocketses and I’m giving golden Indians in exchange for something yummy. Panhandler giving you grief? Flip him some gold & make a dent in the cost of a night at The Palace. Stopping by the pub for a cold one? Just drop a couple Indian princesses on the bar.
The only drawback is that there is a benefit to attaching hassle to something which costs more than a dollar. If we allow ourselves to become conditioned that a dollar, once high end currency of the same ilk as the $20 or $50 or the mighty $100 is now chump change like a quarter, or even the measly penny, then the $5 coin is right on its heels and pretty soon we’re all “OK” with giving up entire paychecks for a cheeze burger.
But I’m hooked.
